... an hour or so of nothing but tortured trees, you see an oasis! Tall buildings. It's the Primm Valley at the Nevada/Cali border. They waste no time putting up casinos in the most unlikely and unwise place to put a city. Why drive the additional hour to Vegas? We can take your money right at the border.
